C O O L - Le Youth

Speed: 110 bpm The DJ's Take: Pick a venue - runway in Milan, poolside in South Beach, lounge in Ibiza, summer roadtrip with the top down, and I could picture this track fitting in pretty well. You may recognize the re-worked vocals from Cassie's Me & U . I used to spin that a lot when it was hot several years ago, but wasn't really fun to play. Reaction from the crowd was sort of subdued, and the beat was a little light and bland for my taste. This has a little more groove and flavor. If you're looking for a key-compatible Top 40 mix/mashup partner, try going with Take Back The Night . Download the song: Amazon:

Need U (100%) - Duke Dumont ft. A*M*E

tempo: 124 bpm The DJ's Take: This track has a serious 90s club vibe going. Smooth and mellow - perfect soundtrack for well-dressed, impeccably coiffed people who want to dance in a very controlled and stylish manner . Mix with: I Need Your Love - Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding , Va Va Voom - Nicki Minaj , Titanium - David Guetta and Sia , Turn Me On - David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj , Where Have You Been - Rihanna , In The Dark - DEV , Don't Stop The Party - Black Eyed Peas , Take Over Control - Afrojack ft.

Ooo La La - Robin Thicke

Speed: 110 bpm The DJ's Take: Maybe it's just me, but I'd pick this as the follow-up single after Blurred Lines. A legit groove. This is like Take Back The Night with swag. He's somehow channeled JT, MJ, Al B. Sure , and the BeeGees all at once, and I like that. Anyway, my gut tells me this is the kind of track people can dance to, even if they haven't heard it before. If you like key-compatible mashups, try mixing with Criminal .
